Quillisascut Farm School Scholarship
Farm Culinary 101: The Sustainable Kitchen
Educating culinary students and food professionals about where food comes from, changing the way people cook and eat for a better food future. In the rolling hills above Lake Roosevelt near Colville, WA, Quillisascut Farm offers food professionals and culinary students a unique opportunity to experience the farm-to-table connection first hand.
During weeklong immersions, participants will milk goats, make cheese, help care for farm animals, transplant vegetables, and harvest produce from the gardens. Visits to neighboring organic farms and presentations about honeybees, composting, organic labeling standards, genetically modified foods and globalization round out the experience as students gain an understanding of the implications of buying local and with the seasons. Each day, students will work with a chef to prepare lunch and dinner using only ingredients from the garden and products from local farms. Dinner is a culmination of the day’s work–a time to feast on the bounty of the farm, reflect on the discussions of the day, and build community around the table.
Retreat participants will stay in our farm school, with bunkhouse-style lodging and a professional kitchen.
